So today I got the kids back on track with their Summer HW assignments (we'd fallen off for about a week). It was a bit chaotic with Samuel going through a crying session in the middle of it and Marissa getting frustrated and crying about having to find words with the Long E sound... but eventually we got through it.
I have to say I'm proud of myself for not losing my patience with Marissa. All the crying over finding Long E sounds was really frustrating to me! But I kept calm and we got through it... prayerfully we'll be able to get through the rest of the worksheet tomorrow...
